Eating a arroz de pato here. Top Qaulity. In the center just behind my hotel. Nice terras on the street. Also mentioning the music, the owner likes 70 music. Very special ambiance.

Having stayed very close to this restaurant, it became our daily go-to spot for good food and drink. The owners - Miguel and Ana - along with Philip were the best hosts a diner could ask for. Beyond their great service and friendly nature, the food was excellent. The duck rice and steak with butter sauce (can't recall the name) were the best we had in Portugal.

And the desserts, oh the desserts. My wife loved the lemon custard and I was crazy for the pumpkin cheesecake.

Also, if you have the chance, stop in while the Portuguese national soccer team is playing. I had the pleasure of doing this twice during our stay and it was a blast. The reactions from the kitchen were great and Miguel was happy to talk about the beautiful game when time allowed.

A great place and I can't wait to go back!

I have visited this restaurant many times and had various wonderful meals. Not only the food has been always excellent, the service provided by the couple that runs the place and all the other employees has always been very cheerful, polite, very friendly and professional. As a regular customer of this lovely establishment and although not being the type of person to leave reviews, I feel that I have to put the record right as far as vouching for the friendliness and rectitude of the people working there. It is a wonderful restaurant and not a "café". When you are lucky enough to find a free table outside not many things beat a always lovely meal with the lovely portuguese weather. A lovely place to eat that I most definitely recommend for everything except perhaps just a coffee....

I had recently arrived from a stay abroad and was strolling around my hometown, absorbing the transformations. After a long winter the sun was out and all I could think about was having an espresso with the sun in my face, and scribble on my notebook. I arrive at Tasquinha da Vila which I didn't know and, lover of novelties, curated places and 'petiscos' as I am, decided to give a look at the interior and its beautiful details. It's 12 sharp and the tables are empty, inside and out. I tell the waiter I just wanted an espresso outside and he refuses, saying, quite rudely, that it's lunch time only. I said I understood the question, but that I would definitely leave as soon as other costumers started to arrive for lunch - most likely, even earlier than that. He said, again, with a very crisp tone, that the tables were set and he wouldn't unset and reset a table for me to have an espresso. So I just left. The waiter returned to his seat. Still no one in sight.

There only one thing worse than bad food, and that's bad service. They didn't lose an espresso. They lost a costumer for life. As a local, I went to every single restaurant around 'Tasquinha da Vila' dozens of times. Reading the reviews, I can assume the food is good. But I will very likely never find out.

Caro Vitor.
A equipa da Tasquinha da Vila privilegia um serviço atento ao cliente e somos sempre bastante atenciosos e simpáticos com os nossos clientes.
De facto, não somos um café, somos um restaurante e o nosso foco é servir refeições e não cafés.
Não nos recusamos a servir cafés a ninguém, simplesmente pedimos que o café seja consumido ao balcão. Isto porque muitas vezes abrimos excepções e de um momento para o outro temos a esplanada cheia de pessoas a beber café e precisamos de mesa para almoços e simplesmente estão todas ocupadas, não podendo obviamente mandar ninguém embora.
Se alguém foi mais assertivo ou até menos simpático consigo desde já lhe pedimos desculpa, vamos tentar apurar o que se passou, mas todos os funcionários estão formatados para não aceitar senão refeições no período estabelecido para as mesmas, e estão instruídos também para explicar isto ao cliente de uma forma simpática como é óbvio, pois é assim que somos e queremos ser sempre com gregos e troianos. O facto de termos uma esplanada não impede que possamos escolher a nossa identidade que é servir refeições deliciosas e tratar bem todos os nossos clientes.

We 1st stumbled across this tapas bar/restaurant looking for a place to have a drink. It being near meal time they were reluctant to let us sit just for a drink. So we had some lovely tapas to go with a few glasses of delicious vino verde.
We came back a few evenings later for a meal. And we had a wonderful meal.
The place is very simple and the menu also (but plenty to choose from).
We finished off with a pumpkin cheesecake served in a jam jar...wonderful (please send me the recipe if you read this ).
The staff are very nice (maybe family run?).
I would definitely highly recommend stopping here if you are in the area.
Fairly priced also!
